About this event

George Méliès (1861 – 1938) is considered to be one of the inventors of cinematography. This live performance , the musical brainchild of Jean-François Alcoléa, is a magical show where a multi-layered, evocative and intricate score complements and interprets the silent films. A trio of virtuosic musicians are almost a show in themselves, as they conjure music from an extraordinary array of instruments: basics like piano, percussion and guitar; fantastic oddities like the aquaphone (ocean harp), theremin and melodica; and mundane objects like stemware, circular saws, and even plastic take-out lids. The mesmerizing score and panoply of unexpected sound expertly evokes the technical wizardry, hilarity, and stream of invention bequeathed to cinema by Méliès.

“An exuberant mixed-media feast full of experimental verve.” The Fountain, Edinburgh Fringe Festival

“A magical hour where films, lighting and music weave a rich tapestry. A unique experience that goes way beyond merely watching very old movies. SG Fringe, Edinburgh

“It is at once inventive, elegant, and moving … right to the core!” Chronique Festival Avignon
